Stripped: Rooms without Wallpaper

It started small with the half bath downstairs. Layers and layers of wallpaper peeled off the walls in large sheets, yellowed with age. While it was a dusty job (all that aged crumbling plaster came down too), thanks to a dust mask it wasn't so bad and surprisingly satisfying. We stripped the paper all the way down to the original plaster. Over the first weekend in the house we hit the kitchen, creating piles and piles of old paper. And it only took a couple hours the following Monday night to completely remove all the paper in the upstairs bathroom.

It doesn't look like progress... it doesn't really even feel like progress. But it is progress...
